However, he can also be a bit of a sore loser as seen here.



His unique style has garnered criticism from retired NHL defenseman Brent Sopel. Sopel voiced his disapproval on Instagram, prompting a lighthearted response from the Anaheim Ducks, Zegras' team. Despite the criticism, Zegras continues to attract new fans to the sport through his impressive repertoire of moves.

Sopel expressed his dissatisfaction with Trevor Zegras and his unconventional character. On Instagram, Sopel stated,

"You've got what's his face in Anaheim (Zegras). I would take a two-hander to his teeth and love every second of it."

Zegras Claps Back



The Anaheim Ducks' official Twitter account responded to Sopel's remarks towards Zegras in a lighthearted manner. They tweeted a single emoji, "😂 Z," indicating amusement or a lack of serious consideration.

Zegras' response suggests that they found Sopel's threat petty and unwarranted.


Threatening a young player as a retired defenseman casts a negative light on Sopel, reflecting poorly on his character. Despite the criticism, Zegras' unique playing style continues to draw more fans to the sport. His ability to execute impressive tricks and maneuvers on the ice adds excitement to the game and captures the attention of spectators.
